May 24, 2014, was my first time ever attending/photographing a Quinceañera!
What a beautiful tradition. I was very prepared for the events of the ceremony, but I may still have teared up a little. It was such an amazing thing. No notes had me prepared to witness that much LOVE toward someone from an entire community & their family.
It was especially fun because Marisela is amazing. When I met her I thought she was a lot like me at that age. I found it she was into heavier music but still enjoyed romantic movies. I am familiar with that! ;] She is so gorgeous and had the most beautiful fuchsia gown (complete with bling) but still donned her monroe piercing and was up for some grungier backgrounds to compliment her look! (Note: We did still do some traditional location shots too since we like to mix it up)
I will always be so thankful to have been a part of her “Sweet 15”.
